(670 The Score) Bears safety Eddie Jackson was named NFC Defensive Player of the Month for November on Thursday, this a day after he was recognized as NFC Defensive Player of the Week.

Jackson's latest honor comes for his body of work in November, which included 15 tackles and three defensive touchdowns -- two interceptions returned for a score and a forced fumble and recovery returned for a score. Jackson most recently stepped up with a decisive pick-six in the Bears' 23-16 win against the Lions in Detroit last Thursday.
